Just a miserable car


Too numerous to mention. Stalled at cruising speeds.

General Comments:

My family had gotten and 84 Horizon that we all rather liked. It ran well, was roomy for its size and pleasant. I really wanted a Chrysler Laser, but was too cheap to buy one, so we got off to a bad start and it only got worse.

By 1986, Chrysler's here today, gone tomorrow quality was gone. This car was just a P.O.S. On top of that, there just wasn't a redeeming characteristic about it. It was ugly, awkward and didn't do anything well. Kinda like me at the time. I suppose it was slightly better than the Monza it replaced. Fortunately I loved the 89 Grand Prix I bought after it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
